Coconut cream cheese cookies are a delicious and easy-to-make treat. Here are some pro tips to help you make the perfect cookies:

– Be sure to use softened cream cheese, not block cream cheese straight from the fridge. This will ensure that your cookies are smooth and creamy.

– If you don’t have any coconut extract on hand, you can substitute vanilla extract. The flavor won’t be quite as coconutty, but it will still be delicious.

– For an extra bit of decadence, try dipping the cookies in melted chocolate once they’ve cooled.
